THE Wonthaggi Croquet Club’s Golf Cro -
quet Doubles tournament was held on the
weekend of February 18 and 19 with players
from many clubs participating.
Teams were split into two sections with the
intention being that the winners of each sec-
tion would play off in a final.
However, as is often the case in our wonder-
ful Australian summer, the weather was not
playing fair and on the Sunday play had to be
cancelled prior to the last game due to hail
and flooding of the courts.
Tournament managers made the call that
the teams on top of each section at that stage
would be declared joint winners.
Section 1 was won by West Rosebud pair
Alan Johnston and Rob Riley with Wonthag-
gi’s own Sam Morale and Ray Ogle as run-
Section 2 was won by Pam Mason from
Mornington who paired up with Wonthaggi’s
Barbara Heesh with runners-up Ruth Cashin
from Korumburra pairing up with Wonthag-
gi’s Fred Heesh.
Despite the uncontrollable weather setback,
the tournament was once again a success
with thanks going to many of the Wonthaggi
club members for assisting on the weekend.
